Generally, a bachelor's degree is the minimum education required of a computer engineer. You can do B.Tech./B.E. in Computer Science. Almost all the Engineering institutes offer these courses. You will have to write JEE or other state or national level entrance exams in order to qualify and get a seat there.

Most employers require students to hold a bachelor's degree in computer science, computer programming, computer engineering, and computer information systems. Employers have strong preferences that come with a Computer Science degree from premier institutions. However, if you don't have an Engineering degree doesn't put an end to your ambitions of becoming a Computer Engineer. Here are the few things that you can do if you are not going for a Computer Science degree.

1. Go for BCA if you are below 12th standard. If not you can go for MCA.

2. Get a Science degree along with computers. That is considered valuable in small scale IT companies.

3. You can get an internship under an experienced professional. In this way you will learn a number of technical skills.

Professional certification for computer engineers is offered through the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Certification serves as a boost for those looking to accelerate their career in the field of computer engineering.

5. Get yourself familiar with few programming languages, data architecture and algorithms so that given an opportunity of an interview, you can do well there.
